July 2014 - Little Einsteins Nurseries
The latest Little Einsteins’ management meeting held at Forth Care’s head office in Kirkcaldy was followed by a team building day for the nursery managers. It was an excellent opportunity for the managers to bond and get to know each other better as they are generally based in their own nurseries and don’t get the opportunity to meet informally very often. Once the nursery business had been discussed at the meeting Mark Crouch, Operations Director of Forth Care Ltd, organised series of challenges, the success of which relied on the girls working as a team.
It was great fun made even better by the warm sunshine allowing the challenges to be held outside.
The Commonwealth Games Baton Relay passed through Kirkcaldy last week. The main photo shows the children from the nursery waiting for it to arrive. They were all really excited and waved their flags with great enthusiasm as the relay passed by. One little girl was a bit disappointed however as she had hoped to see the Queen.
Once we returned to the nursery everyone was keen to make their own baton as you can see from the photographs.
Another graduation day to celebrate at Little Einsteins Nursery. This time it was the turn of the children at Arbroath to wear their gowns and received their certificates. Good Luck to all of you at primary school in August!!
Kirsty Haston, from Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy nursery, applied to the local Dobbies Garden Centre for assistance through their “Here We Grow” campaign which encourages local community groups, projects, schools and charities to enjoy planting and growing in their own gardens, by offering products, equipment, support and help.
Some of the children from the nursery are pictured above with Kirsty (back row right) when they popped in to Dobbies to choose plants and equipment which would tie in with their eco schools and biodiversity projects. With the help of Dobbies staff they chose apple trees, raspberry and blackberry bushes which links in with their “where does our food come from?” project. They also bought various herbs, hanging baskets and bird feeders to encourage wildlife to the nursery garden.
They helped with the planting back at the nursery and will enjoy watching everything grow over the next few months. We would like to thank Dobbies for their generosity and support.
